Steven Sandven tells the Rapid City Journal that the state has already charged him more than $4,000 for records from the Governor's Office of Economic Development.

Sandven is also seeking records from Northern State University, where the state's EB-5 projects were administered until GOED began contracting with the private company SDRC Inc. Sandven says Northern State University president James Smith told him in an email that SDRC director Joop (yohp) Bollen took many of the EB-5 records with him to SDRC.

Sandven's interest in the EB-5 program goes back to the mid-2000s when he represented minority owners in MCC Dairy.
